Global data provider Thomson Reuters has expanded its market data offering with the addition of four emerging market stock exchanges and the Dow Jones Federation of Euro-Asian stock exchanges indices (FEAS).
Thomson Reuters will be the first non-domestic firm to offer data from Vietnam’s Hanoi Stock Exchange and the first with a real-time offering from the Ukrainian Stock Exchange, which started trading in March this year. Real-time and historical level-one data for the Sarajevo Stock Exchange, specifically for stocks included on the BIFX and SASX10 indices, and real-time data for the Prague Energy Exchange will also be offered to clients.
The data provider will also start to offer level-two data – with five levels of market depth, aggregated volume and number of offers for financial and agricultural futures – from the Brazilian Mercantile and Futures Exchange (BM&F), which it says was added to satisfy the growing demand for electronic transaction services in Latin America.
The Dow Jones FEAS indices include data from the component stocks from exchanges in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Amman (Jordan), Bahrain (Kingdom of Bahrain), Belgrade (Serbia), Bulgaria (Bulgaria), Istanbul (Turkey), Karachi (Pakistan), Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia), Muscat (Oman), and Zagreb (Croatia). They are designed to cover 95% of the free-float market capitalisation of each country in the respective index.
All the new additions will be accessible via Reuters 3000 Xtra desktop.
“We remain committed to providing innovative, rich, intelligent, timely and comprehensive market data so that the growing global transaction community can adopt efficient trading strategies,” said Stephen Wilson, global head of exchange traded instruments at Thomson Reuters, in a statement. “Thomson Reuters has had a presence in emerging markets for decades. We continue to invest in them as we recognise their importance beyond their borders.”
